Shiny and New..............

Hello there!

I'm here with inspiration for the current 'Shiny and New' challenge at Graph'It Marker Challenge Blog. I interpreted this challenge as new as in new home or new baby and I opted to use a Saturated Canary image 'Close to my Heart'.
I made a simple A5 card with backing papers from Lili of the Valley, the polka dot one is actually from the 'Snow Princess' 8x8 pad and the flower paper is from Nitwit 'Petal Fresh' 8x8 paper pad.

I used the following Graph'It Markers to colour her:

Skin:  4120, 4155, 4170, 4145, 4135, 4175 (lips)
Hair:  3110, 3140, 3150, 3180
Dress:  9100, 9102, 9103, 7105, 7115
Shawl:  4120, 4150, 4180
Baby:  4120, 4155, 3110, 3150, 3180

I added some lace and paper flowers to finish off the card and accentuate the image. Some pearls to the edges for extra embellishment and there she is, all complete.

Now why don't you pop on over to the main blog and take part in the fun with us.  Remember you CAN USE ANY MARKER to enter and you have until 16th January to enter! Our Random winner will receive some Graph'It Markers as a lovely prize!

Thanks for popping past and I'll see you soon!
